We have eaten here many times over the years so were a bit concerned when we sensed a change this time - 7 months ago it changed hands. We needn't have worried though the standard and format have been maintained. The menu has been altered somewhat - we dined from the fixed price, wine inclusive menu. Our choices were not... More

Headed this restaurant as it close to our hotel & we had read good reviews. We had a lovely welcome from a gent in a straw hat who settled us outside. We could hear a female soloist performing inside, she had a fantastic voice. The starter of bruschetta with pesto was nice but overly salted. The lasagna was quite dry... More

First I must say they had live music. A young lady with a beautiful voice kept us well entertained. The food took a long time to come and looked average on the plate. It tasted better than it looked but have had better for less. The staff are very entertaining sometimes for the wrong reason as two returned dishes crashed... More

We've passed this place nearly every day over the last two weeks and on two previous visits whilst staying at the Quinta da Casa Branca. I wished we'd gone before now. It's a lovely friendly place, good wines, and delicious food, the scabbard is devine and the vegetables are cooked to perfection. We will definitely return, possibly for dinner next... More

We took a two course meal with my wife. We booked via internet and received a 30% discount on food. I ate a risotto which needed a bit more salt. Meal had only about five shrimps with lots of rice. There should have been more in the risotto, eg. vegetables or more shrimps. The fish (Doroda) was great. I would... More

The chap with the hat is determined to tempt you in and one night we obliged. The experience was a pleasant one, I can recommend the scabbard fish, served in the traditional Portugese way. The surroundings are good and the staff work hard to ensure you enjoy the restaurant. There is a meal deal for two people, including a bottle... More

After a long day wandering around Funchal, we were enticed in by the 5% off deal given to us. What a find!! The service was funny and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and it was the first time we tried vinho verde (nice and refreshing after a day in the sun). The food was great and tasty but, you... More
